Where To Change Oil For The Reduced Price
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are looking for oil change deals for your next oil change, transmission oil change or even synthetic oil change, you do not always have to think that you need to take your vehicle to the professional down the road. You will be smart not to trust that the oil must be changed every 3 months or 3000 miles. This kind of information is not entirely truthful.

First off, forget the every 3,000 miles. You will find that around 7000 miles is a suggested norm if you are not putting an extra strain on the car. Most of the time you will be suggested that 5000 miles should be the limit, but if you drive for 6000 miles even you should be fine without changing oil. If you follow these suggestions you will be saving around half of what you would've spent if you followed the 3000 miles rule.

Here's another way in which you can save a ton of money and that is by doing the oil change yourself. Might seem like a lot of work but it is easy after the first time. So, instead of spending $35 or more on your oil change, you could save about $20 if you do it yourself.

If for some reason you simply do not like the idea of changing your own oil and you still want to take it to one of those quick lube places or some other automotive place that is advertising a special on their oil changes, understand that although the price might be very competitive make sure that you read all the fine print that comes with the ad. If not aware of everything included in the print you may end up paying the hidden fees like disposal fees, taxes and service fees, making it not all that cheap.

There is also one more note to make for those who decide to save money and do their own job, you will need to make sure that if it's the first time you've done this that you have some basic equipment on hand. The best thing you can do if it is your first time changing the oil is calling a friend who has done it before and seek his advice or do it with him.

You can find even better oil change deals, transmission oil change and synthetic oil change deals by looking for the items you need on sale. You can just wait until there are sale with the auto parts and oil change stores. There are times when such stores will sell oil in huge bulks for around $10, hence saving a significant amount of money.


Street Talk

Good advice Bobbie. I used to change my auto oil every 2,000 miles when I was a lot younger man. I did all my own service. I enjoyed it. I don't do my own auto service anymore. I go down to the oil shop and get it done. Some of the auto parts stores will do service like changing out batteries and replacing wiper blades around here. I do all my own service on the sportbike. I don't trust motorcycle stealerships.
